    The picture shows the way that the children in the whole costal areas ofSomalia, their dress was just of that of arab of indian style, since the neightbour of our country is in between of these country, no wonder just see the sultanate of the Somalis were dressing those of Arabic style, just look very careful you will see the child sittinf in the left of the photo is a very Somali child sitting, but without the cup, say TARBUSH or COFIYO.
